Great Program for Schools

SignUp Genius has been a tremendous asset for our school. We use it both for school events and for our parent organization, and it has been a great resource for coordinating volunteers and planning events. Some examples have included scheduling regular volunteers for single events, coordinating larger events (ex: Oktoberfest) which require a large number of volunteers serving in different capacities at different times, and allowing parents to sign up for parent teacher conference time slots. We've been very pleased that this has been a time saver for our school.

Pros

SignUp Genius is a must-have for schools. Multiple design options allow us to customize sign-ups for a wide variety of events - from Parent- Teacher conferences, to coordinating parent volunteers, to planning community events. Flexible scheduling variables allow for a broad range of events - from volunteers at a single event, to on-going events. Easy to use and adapt to each unique event. This also allows you to easily copy or duplicate a past event, which is very helpful with events that happen monthly or yearly.

Cons

It would be helpful if there was an easy way within the platform for volunteers to access multiple sign-ups that we have created at one time. We currently have to collect individual signup links and share them- but it would be useful to have a landing page for our organization where we could collect multiple events in one easy place.

Reasons for Choosing SignUpGenius

This has been the easiest and most cost effective solution for our organization.

Use for volunteer's management

My overall experience has been ok. It does the job in terms of volunteer management

Pros

It's fairly easy to manage from both the user and admin interface. It's simple enough that volunteers can sign up for events and projects with no major troubles.

Cons

The way to edit existing events could be a little bit less cumbersome or more straightforward, especially when adding slots. I particularly would like to have the possibility of adding the name of the event as another column into the table created for the event. It's not handy for me to create a new event and therefore a table for every activity we do. I rather have a generic event, for example, "shows" and have a column to list the different shows in a particular month or quarter. This way, I can use the same link in my communications with volunteers. Currently, I am using the location column for that. There should be both options available.

Reasons for Choosing SignUpGenius

I do use Bloomerang for donors and grant management, but signup genius is just easier to separate people interested in volunteering for specific events or activities. They are easier to locate and Signup genius works as scheduling software, which Bloomerang does not.

Great volunteer sign-up tool!

Overall SignUpGenius is a great program for managing volunteers, sign ups, and RSVPs. The free version is great for keeping your events organized and it is worth the ad free signups to do the paid version if you will use it frequently. Despite some design limitations, it offers a clean layout with many options for color and image customization.

Pros

This program is easy to set up and use for volunteer sign-ups and event RSVPs. They offer a free version that still has lots of customization options. The layout is simple and user friendly

Cons

The free version has lots of advertisements that can clutter the screen. While the options for customizing the look of the sign up has a lot of variety (especially the paid version) there are still limitations and it is hard to get it to look great if you want to use your own images and color schemes.

Volunteering made easy

I have used this as a teacher to ask for volunteers for parties and it was easy to use as an administrator and it also was very easy to use on the other end as a user. I use this software very often to sign up to volunteer for my child's school events and the software makes it very easy.

Pros

I liked that you were not forced to create a profile to use the software. I also loved the ease of signing up and editing my sign up and then adding it to my calendar.

Cons

As much as it was easy to add the signups to my Google Calendar, I wish that it would have a button to add all the events rather than clicking on each event to add them individually.

Acceptable and useful, if basic and somewhat confusing

We've used SignUpGenius for 4+ years, and have never been "blown away" by it's features. At the same time, we have been able to use it successfully (with lots of volunteer training sessions). The software hasn't introduced any major overhauls or improvements in all the time we've been using it.

Pros

We've been able to coordinate 200+ seasonal volunteers who help in 12+ positions at 60+ events.

Cons

The software can be rather confusing, especially when onboarding new volunteers or staff.
